TheGenealogist adds colour tithe maps for Warwickshire

From TheGenealogist (

We have just released additional sets of Colour Tithe Maps to join the previously available greyscale maps in our National Tithe Records collection. This release for Warwickshire is of high-resolution colour digitised maps which will provide the family historian with highly detailed maps sourced from both The National Archives as well as the Warwick County Record Office.

Researchers searching for owners or occupiers of Warwickshire land surveyed in the 19th century for the Tithe Commutation Act 1836, now have a choice of plans linked to the fully searchable apportionment schedules. Subscribers to our Diamond membership can select to view The National Archives' grayscale maps, The National Archives' colour maps, or the Warwickshire Record Office colour maps when using the Tithe & Landowner records for this county. The Warwickshire Record Office maps are, in many cases, less faded and more vibrant in their colours, having had less wear and tear than the alternatives.
